Tangled Up In Blue

Indigo In South Carolina

This program at Middleton Place will emphasize the many roles that enslaved people performed in the cultivating and processing of Indigo. This crop was a plant that produced a blue dye and was an essential part of South Carolina’s 18th-century economy.  Also, guests will have the opportunity to use an indigo vat to create their blue-dyed piece of fabric.
